 Update: Death of Justice...

Death sentence against a woman in Pakistan accused of a religious insult stands after failed appeal
Link Here  full story: Blasphemy in Pakistan...Blasphemy laws used for personal vendettas
Pakistan flag Pakistani 'justice' continues to do its bit to contribute to the dreadful reputation of islam. A Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy after supposedly making derogatory remarks about Islam to her Muslim neighbours has lost her appeal to have the decision overturned.

In 2010, Asia Bibi got into a dispute with neighbours and co-workers after they objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not Muslim.

She was later reported for defiling the name of the religious character Mohammed during the argument and became the first woman to be sentenced to death under Pakistan's disgraceful blasphemy law.

The shocking case hit global headlines after two prominent politicians who tried to help Bibi were assassinated, one by his own bodyguard.

Pakistan flag Reprieve's has a petition to save British grandfather Mohammad Asghar from execution for blasphemy. We've now reached a crucial point in the campaign to bring Mohammad home -- we're nearly at 100,000 signatures, and this Friday, his daughter Jasmine will deliver the petition herself to 10 Downing Street.

Can you help us spread the word before Friday by sharing the petition?

I also wanted to give you a bit of an update on Mohammad: He remains in hospital in Pakistan, but because of the blasphemy charges against him, he is at real risk of being attacked again. Now more than ever, we need to make sure that David Cameron does all he can to try to bring Mohammad home.

Please help us get as many signatures as we can before Friday by sharing this link to the petition:
